The Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE) has been awarded a nearly $4 million federal Native Youth Community Project grant from the U.S. Department of Education that is aimed at improving college and career readiness for American Indian high school students across the state. “Citizens of Oklahoma’s 39 tribal nations are an invaluable part of our state’s cultural tapestry and make critical investments in our public school system,” said State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister. “These funds will allow us to focus more of our efforts on shaping a comprehensive statewide strategy to increase college and career readiness for American Indian students through high school graduation.” Led by OSDE’s executive director of American Indian education, Julian Guerrero, Jr., the planned activities include the development of a statewide network of MTCs and associated student Math Circles that will support American Indian students and their teachers. Learn more about the grant.
